The hotel was easy to find as we arrived by car. We had pre-booked for underground parking. Our room had a lake view and was clean, plenty of toiletries, hairdryer. Quirky hanging rail from the ceiling had us in hoots as we had to 'fish' for our clothes with a long pole!
The swimming pool was clean and welcoming after a long day's sightseeing. Towels were provided there. Didn't use the spa as we were only there two nights but I'm sure it would be up to the standard of everything else.
I would have preferred breakfast on the terrace instead of in an upstairs room but there were still the fabulous views whilst you were eating. Scrambled eggs and bacon, hard-boiled eggs, honey, bread rolls, local bread, local cheeses, ham, cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit, peach & pear halves, fruit cocktail, cake, croissants, tea, coffee, juices, water. We didn't eat dinner at the Hotel as the menu wasn't to our taste but ate in the main square.
We did have bar drinks on the terrace and the service was very food. The reception staff and everyone else there was very friendly and spoke perfect English. We would stay here again as it is away from the centre of the town but only 5 minutes walk.
Turn left out of the hotel and you can walk around the headland along the lungolago with plenty of photo opportunities. Fantastic stay there!
